“Once we have clients, we help them find what they want. We create an excellent experience managing their expectations, showing them that we know what we're talking about, and giving them confidence through our confidence.”

Cody Skrypkowski, Team Partner, North Group

For the past three years, Cody Skrypkowski has been the top producer at North Group. As the first agent to join North Group eight years ago, he is grateful to the team that gave him the wings and confidence to succeed.

Today North Group helps him to build his industry and Toronto market knowledge, set and exceed client expectations, and maintain authentic, successful relationships.

Cody’s Story

After revisiting his goals in university, Cody decided to pursue a career in real estate. As an Ottawa native, he admits he arrived in Toronto thinking anything North of Bloor was “really far” from the downtown core. He realized that he'd need a mentor if he wanted to fast-track his growth and success. North Group founder Amy Youngren provided tangible knowledge he could “lean into.”

Cody recognized the important role other people's skills and talents played in his own success. Through North Group’s training, mentorship, and access to high-quality leads, he quickly got his feet wet and forged his own path.

He attributes his success to three things:

1. Managing clients’ expectations 

2. Leading with confidence

3. Establishing long-term client relationships

He hopes to maintain his title as Top Producer as he completes another banner year.

Why the Team at North Group?

Cody feels the biggest challenge in real estate is setting expectations with clients. This calls for a completely transparent approach so that clients understand the market trends that impact their transactions.

“What I like the most about North Group is the convenience of leadership where there's constant growth and learning so that we can adapt to changing markets.”  

North Group has the system and methods to provide exceptional client services and well-thought-out programs designed to advance Cody’s business. North Group understands the importance of economies of scale and how the unique platform used by the team is the most direct route to overall transaction efficiencies. North Group is also very strong from a marketing standpoint, seeking innovative ideas and collaborating with the right people.

Tons of training and a group of industry experts, including lawyers, mortgage brokers, and home inspectors, ensure the focus remains on the things that matter throughout every real estate transaction.


The support and programs at North Group allow Cody to zero in on what his clients need and act quickly. Cody keeps close tabs on the latest listings, and as each buyer comes on board, he shows them properties that fit the bill. 

On average, his buyers look at three to five properties instead of eight to 10. As a result, they are quickly in the position to put in an offer.

North Group operations ensure everything is automated and paperwork is managed efficiently. Emails keep clients in the loop, and reminders ensure nothing is missed. These little steps avoid worries that turn into major issues, such as missed deadlines and closings. The Operations Team takes care of all the administration and ensures everything is “as dialled in as possible.”

“What I like the most about North Group is the convenience of leadership where there's constant growth and learning so that we can adapt to changing markets.”  


Cody’s desire to stay focused on selling real estate requires a strong support group willing to take everything else off his plate. When he is candid about his reasons for staying, it has much to do with convenience. Could he do it on his own? Likely - but that would require building out systems, services, staff, marketing and more, and that’s the whole point. He is a half a million dollar annual producer that can plug into the foundation and stay focused on what matters the most: his clients. With strong administrative support at North Group, he can create an authentic experience where clients get precisely what they want. He focuses on client face time and sharing his expertise so that they know what they're buying or transacting on is a reasonable purchase or sale. 

All the back-end stuff is done behind the scenes seamlessly, ensuring no balls are dropped, and his clients are satisfied.

He also loves that North Group is leading-edge, seeking new technology, apps, and services that make both his and his client’s lives easier.


Cody believes the real estate industry is straightforward at its core. You talk to people. You make good relationships, and at the end of the day, you facilitate transactions, ensuring you protect your clients along the way. 

An agent’s work speaks for itself without the need to complicate things for clients simply trying to find a trustworthy agent. North Group cuts out the noise using relevant content that makes finding an agent easier. There’s no “flexing,” just honest grassroots approaches such as testimonials and accolades that organically demonstrate their knowledge of the product while sharing true client experiences.
